One of the biggest complaints continues to be food temperature. The fish was warm not hot and we returned the cauliflower because it was absolutely cold. Also, anyone just comes in. There used to be a sense of fancy because the people was not allowed to walked in with whatever outfits they felt like wearing - that sense of high end dining is getting lost. We have been customers for years - my husband couldn’t wait to eat his fish . This time his one statement was “this is the end of the Truluck’s era”

My wife and I went for an anniversary and we couldn't have been treated better by the staff, including the chef and manager. It was wonderful arriving, being immediately recognized per our reservation, and seated at a coveted table. With rose pedals on the table and a hand written celebratory card, we couldn't have been treated better.

The food was fantastic and delicious. We started with crab claws and our cocktails to start out our evening and again, it couldn't be more perfect. The only hiccup to the best night out was that the entrees were delivered to the table too quickly. It felt rushed. Granted there were not as many guests in the restaurant so the kitchen likely pumped out our plates at record speed, but we were still on our appetizers while the waiter brought us the food. Again, we felt rushed but we weren't going to make a big deal. I'd rather them deliver it than take back to the kitchen to die at the pass.

Truluck's celebrated our anniversary wonderfully as we expected. It truly is a wonderful restaurant and we will continue to patron any chance we get. Thanks again.

Not sure what stood out the most: excellent service, amazing food, great ambiance. Overall perfect dining experience. The amuse-bouche was so good I would've ordered it as a meal if I could've. We had the lobscargot and lobster bisque--both were delicious. My scallops were seasoned and cooked perfectly; my husband loved his Salmon Bearnaise. they brought out a Baked Alaska for my birthday on the house which was a nice, unexpected treat.

We’ve never had a better dining experience and will always go back for those special occasions! From the greeting at the hostess stand to the call the next day it was amazing and welcoming! We mentioned that we were celebrating an anniversary and within minutes rose petals appeared on our table and we were brought a baked Alaska for dessert compliments of the restaurant. Our server was swift, knowledgeable and savvy—We can’t wait until the next time!

The staff was amazing! They gave us the beautiful corner window table with rose petals when we arrived, and a decadent cake assortment after our fantastic dinner. They called us the next day to check in and make sure everything was perfect. Could not have asked for better service! Thanks again for making it a very special evening!

I feel Trulucks is the finest seafood restaurant in Austin. The downtown location is a beautiful space, the service is excellent and the seafood is always fresh. Yes it is expensive but you get what you pay for and that is thecae at Trulucks!

A little strong sales by the waiter. While i understand all were frequent diners and did not need the heavy push and upsell.

5 Stars all the way around! My wife and I were celebrating our wedding anniversary and had a reservation at 8:45. We showed up about 8 to have some cocktails at the bar area. The mood was just right, we checked in with the host and he asked us if we wanted to go upstairs at an earlier time. We were up in 15 mins. As for the food, 5stars for everything! There is nothing I haven't had on the menu that was short of amazing! This place has always been my goto place if you want top of the line ambiance, service and menu. Great Job Trulux!!

the service wasn't as great as in the past but the food was excellent and the dining room is beautiful. Still miss the fries although the hash brows are pretty good.
